Mike Wallace Dead at 93
While best known as a correspondent on the long-running news program "60 Minutes," Mike Wallace has worn numerous and varied other hats such as narrator on the "Green Hornet" and "Sky King" radio series, game show host, actor (under the name name Myron Wallace, although he played himself in one of my favorite films, A Face in the Crowd), and he also hosted several other news shows before landing "60 Minutes."
Wallace had semi-retired in 2006, but appeared throughout 2008. He garnered at least twenty Emmy Awards, had written two autobiographies, and was perhaps the last of the real television journalists (just my opinion). We have lost one of the greats.
